getting the 'real' fw versionEdit
dh: 2010-02-08 - my camera (sd1200is purchased dec 2009 in us) only shows "Firmware 188.8.131.52" (from funcset + trash&timer with vers.req) - with none of the other stuff mentioned above. Also canon site lists no firmware updates available, so don't know why difference of gm1.00c above versus my 184.108.40.206 - Don't know what this means yet. (don't know how to 'drive' this wiki yet either, so hope I'm not corrupting anything.)
- As explained in the FAQ, "220.127.116.11" is not the real fw version.
- Make sure, the filename is really ver.req or vers.req !
- On MS Windows, make sure the file is NOT ver.req.txt - read more here: How to NOT hide extensions in Windows.
- On a Mac, read the Mac FAQ, especially Still Having Trouble ?

it is now runing (to some extent) the CHDK Edit
the CHDK can be used on this camera just by copying the compile made by KevB that can be found here:
it was uploaded by awdark it doesn't do auto-boot, it can only be used by turning on the camera in play mode (pressing the play button while the camera is off) and going to the lowest option: firmware update, that will boot the CHDK normally.
In the link, there are a few scripts addend in the scripts folder.
